  • After seeing a broadcast about Lane Goodwin and his struggle with brain cancer, two Perry Central students, Kearstin Parker and Mackenzee Mattingly, kneeling in front, thought it would be a great idea to have everyone gather for a group photo to let his family know they are in their thoughts and prayers.
